In flolinq Memory
It is with great sadness that the McCann
community mourns the loss of former
Principal, Francis Millard. Mr. Millard
left a mark on the school and
community that the class of 2008 and
the McCann family will never forget.
Known for his enthusiasm, drive, and
dedication to youth of Northern
Berkshire County, Mr. Millard touched
the lives of countless students both
academically and athletically. It is
impossible to measure the positive
impact that he had on everyone he
came in contact with. The lessons and
values that Mr. Millard passed to his
students and athletes will affect
generations to come.
Mr. Millard will be remembered as a man who acted honorably at all times.
Over the course of his lifetime, he filled countless roles in a way that
displayed unwavering integrity. Whether as an educator, emergency
medical technician, coach, father, or husband, Mr. Millard served as a role
model for everyone who knew him. He lived his life in a way that people
could not help but admire.
Mr. Millard will always be a part of McCann. On every SkillsUSA trip, in
every athletic contest, and in every classroom his memory will remain. As a
family, McCann is grateful for everything he has done. If success in life is
measured by the number of people we touch, there can be no doubt
that Mr. Millard was beyond successful. Mr. Millard's legacy will forever
remain in our hearts.
